I'm torn between giving 3 and 4 stars.

The whole premise, concept, and theory was absolutely fascinating. How would an aging cure affect us socially and culturally - what a great question. Margary came up with many very plausible scenarios.

I also enjoyed the light humor and pop culture references. The main character was very relatable.

It's not a 5 star because the writing wasn't a marvel, a little awkward at times and even though the storyline pace was not slow, sometimes it felt slow to read. I can't really pinpoint exactly why it felt slow.

The reason it's bumped down from a four (really, I give it 3.8ish) is because I think that while the socio cultural aspects are well thought out and plausible, the economics and technology was not on the same level.

But heck, who cares, it was an awesome read and thought provoking. I recommend it!

Yes, it got horribly depressing at times but to me that says the book was good, because it made you feel something, deep sort of emotions.
